The Northern Witch's Best & Worst books

The Northern Witch's Best & Worst books




Time for a little update.  As those of you who are familiar with my blog knows, I have a list of Past Reviews.  It lists every single review I have posted, along with their score out of 5.
The list is alphabetical by author, and the links are highlighted either gold, silver or bronze, depending on how I rated them.

Ok, not rocket science, but I was chatting with friends about my actual favourites, what would be my top ten?!
So of course, instead of writing and editing, it niggled away until I had to make a new page, my own list of Best & Worst books.
But top ten?  That seemed too limiting, so for the moment, I'm treating you to the Top 20.

*Drumroll*
So I have a pretty banner that my Top 20 indie authors can pinch for their websites/blogs.
I will be updating this page every couple of months.  Or every six months if no one is capable of breaking into the ranks of my all-time favourites!

Child of Recklessness (Trials of Strength #2)

by Matthew R. Bell

4 out of 5

Synopsis
They hoped escaping set them free.
They assumed fighting back put them on top.
They thought they had their enemy sussed.
They were wrong.

Lucas Bishop is a wanted man. After the horrors he and his group endured in Greystone, the hope that followed seemed warranted. They were high on success, and a new mission was formed.
Find the people responsible, and destroy them.
But things have changed. The survivors' lives are about to be rocked once again, with forces beyond their sight taking position.
The new threats test our group to their limits, but in the end, the biggest threat is Lucas himself. He's filled with anger and resentment, and the lines between justice and revenge blur.

Lucas will have to control his emotions.
Or risk leading his new family to destruction....

Synopsis
A powerful, hidden artefact is unearthed in modern day Iraq and, with its discovery, an ancient conflict is reignited. Seventeen-year-old Sage Woods, the daughter of an eminent archaeologist working at the British Museum recently relocated from Australia, uncovers the artefact’s disturbing secret and is placed in terrible danger. Unwittingly, she has stumbled into an invisible war between two primordial dynasties of a supernatural order – a war in which she has a fateful role to play in a race to control the power of the SEED. Embroiled in a quest that takes her from the British Museum to the Louvre to the Vatican Secret Archives, Sage realises that her blossoming romance with the mysterious, alluring St. John Rivers is inextricably tied to the artefact. Up until now, St. John has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Sage is determined to delve deeper to uncover his dark secret and his connection to the SEED. It is a decision that will have a devastating effect on humankind…
